hello and thank you for joining our team i'm karen taraji and these are your stop top stories by masters are to decide whether greece should get more time to sort out its bailout reforms all in germany chancellor merkel's allies say out bones leaving the euro would be no big deal. u.s. special troops are on standby to go into syria following president obama's warning of all theorizing intervention if there are signs to mask us it's moving its chemical arms. despite america's countdown to pullout from afghanistan there was a warning that washington is fueling insurgency following a deadly wave of insider attacks against western troops next hour one of syria's deputy prime ministers shares his view on how a cease fire and lasting peace can be achieved.
10:31 am
there are joined by dr carter his journey and the series vice prime minister for economic affairs and i'm becoming. let us start over visiting your is a news conference where he says the basic principle that must be observed for any kind of dialogue to be possible in syria you named. and it has still it is and refraining from foreign interference and on is there anything else you know. no there are only these two principle ours which should be enough but if we were to agree on these two principles all other issues would become technicalities despite a contradiction is assumed and we would be able to reach an agreement or certain reciprocal concessions over the guidelines in question include refraining from foreign interference in any form of them which means that the syrian people should
10:32 am
be allowed to decide their fate by themselves it is in fact a longstanding principle of international relations that to being violated right now of the thirty second principle requires giving up violence in any of its forms if we look at the issues that lie at the core of contention in syria we'll see that it's something that simply cannot be resolved through the use of force but instead the way to deal with them is to sit down at the negotiating table i should say that pursuing a peaceful solution is through dialogue would require the world to show quite a lot of courage by refraining from military action it might seem that military force can get you farther than anything else but in reality it we've all seen that warfare doesn't get you anywhere politically. the situation in syria is very volatile and any instance of armed combat will only escalate the hostilities and what we need is a similar taney a cease fire mortars that would be in line with the kofi annan plan the geneva arrangement the stance of our friends and the attitude of the syrian government is
10:33 am
that which is published a resolution calling for national reconciliation will. you know. they have. a lot there for how would you respond to people who say they won't negotiate with their government because military machine has been raising serious it is to the ground how was that as a precondition for dialogue and we're going to nick what have i done sort of lead here what. beyond recently violence has been employed by each of the warring parties given there but if we start regarding such statements as a precondition then dialogue will never take place civil wars in lebanon and algeria have shown that sooner or later the warring parties do come to negotiate with each other so the syrian people do have a chance but if only we get down to reconciliation without delay we might avoid having to pay an immense price for our country's war torn economy. common sense and wisdom call for sitting down at the negotiating table as soon as possible are the shadows without imposing any preconditions that will only impede the process of
10:34 am
such demands maybe perfectly well meaning but at the end of the day they're misleading and effectively do more to obstruct the peace process rather than encourage it and anyone who's impeding dialogue right now should be held responsible for the continuing bloodshed in syria the. doctor your doctor had there have been described as prominent personalities of the so-called domestic opposition today you are members of a national reconciliation government notwithstanding the escalating violence would you say that your cooperation with the regime has managed to make a change that up as far as the government policies are concerned there's a that on. the first of all the present government can be called a government of reconciliation as it has a different shape still joining this government on behalf of the opposition was aimed at unraveling the maze and finding a way to establish a true national unity government and we know that by sitting by and expecting such
10:35 am
conditions which will make all the opposition. he's joined in the national unity government can cause damage so we've taken it upon ourselves to make the first step towards forming a coalition government while retaining our opposition views we join the government based on a national unity agenda which was put into practice by a governmental declaration of the declaration includes two major provisions which are at the backbone of the coalition and of the future one of. the syrian government relies on the principle of national reconciliation and its recent declaration upholds this principle as a cornerstone regarding it as a process that would express the sovereign will of the people and to be essential for resolving the crisis adopting a road map for national reconciliation by a national unity government can be regarded as a victory of the entire syrian people the second provision goes in tune with our principles and was proven by the government declaration it suggests focusing on the
10:36 am
east and not just in politics given how the current worldwide situation was affected by russia and china has veto that meant the end of the old age in the beginning of a new one because i mean focusing on the east regarding the economy to fully revising all the economic ties of syria which have existed throughout the years i would fourth of the revision of the system is a crucial target one of the syrian crisis gave rise to it and now the onset of this revision is of great importance and it means a lot that this is not a short term measure this solution will have a positive impact for the syrian economy society and social structure. and you can imagine this is sation off but still it is one of the key principles and you reiterated that point at the news conference however there is violence employed on both sides of the conflict in syria and one of the war in part is is the government you are a minister have you tried using your position in the cabinet to promote the notion of ending the violence. as far as the sation of violence is concerned we should
10:37 am
refer to the geneva communiqué. which provides for a ceasefire in accordance with the kofi annan plan and requires each party to assign their empowered interlocutors of syria did appoint its official representative to whereas the other party still hasn't done so and i don't know why maybe they have trouble picking the right person for the job but whatever the reason the dialogue and negotiation cannot happen without each party making their contribution within our case one of the parties cannot decide whether it wants to participate in their deadlines change constantly on the talks are perpetually perspire and it's high time that we get on with the process of negotiation this issue is closely linked to the opposition choosing between options over the opposition is very diverse and one of its more reasonable factions is the national coordinating committee which has made their stance clear they call for dialogue with no preconditions but we have supported their position which is indeed similar to our own longstanding perspectival but we see that there are points for
10:38 am
convergence among syria's various political groups including the opposition both inside syria and abroad in this regard there was a very important statement made by dr haitham malik who has gone as far as to suggest handing over to the hague tribunals the militants who are guilty of killing syrians is therefore i'm confident the reality itself urges every sane minded person to call for dialogue going to be if we manage to agree on the principles i've already named but once we start a dialogue we would be able to address any issues but we need to refrain from insisting on preconditions that unlikely to prevent dialogue altogether if we can achieve a lot of the negotiating table if only we agree on the two fundamental principles for starting a dialogue with the birth mother that in one of the north observers say earlier that syria has become hostage to a global competition for the power and influence in ways by major global players that want to say that american presidential candidates and president obama in
10:39 am
particular have taken advantage of the. the imagine is that obama hole. the syrian crisis is unfolding at a turning point in history but i like to compare to the su is crisis in the us soviet standoff marked the demise of the old world with where you came from has enjoyed had human and the emergence of a new bipolar world early today the opposition of russia and china is what our she's in the end of a uni polar world with the new world order is yet to take shape today international relations are going through a painful metamorphoses there's a lot of chaos and disagreement and this brings both positive and negative implications for the syrian crisis or the down side to this phenomenon is that the global balance of power is still taking shape your continued hostilities in syria what the u.s. and europe want to say these are still a teaser follow the familiar yugoslavia scenario the shipments of bloodshed makes it impossible for various groups to co-exist peacefully within the syrian nation
10:40 am
this is why the current international situation is so dangerous or whether it also creates an historically unprecedented opportunity for the syrian people to untangle the problem built on a longstanding and deep rooted feud in a totally new way she saw this is of course only possible if there's enough political will power to do that with the head of syria manages to resolve this crisis well it will for the first time in history cast away the all too familiar pattern of dividing the state and society who along the lines of differences as was the case in libya and iraq just to replace it by a renee songs that will get syria a place in the sun in the new political and economic environment than. in walk. my name is richard davis i'm an architectural photographer from london and i've

the two legs for a place in the europa league proper for the very first time. rivalry a reignited the next chapter in the history of the el classico will be worked into my twin barcelona and real madrid to do battle for the spanish super cup. and the racing of russia style the superbike season comes to moscow for the very first time that the race for the wild side will pass at these points. but first. looking to write a new chapter in their history later on thursday they take on dark side over two legs as they look to reach the first round prop of the europa league for the first time in their history michael craft has more. after pulling off an impressive one one draw with graham to the russian premier league leaders and it's in petersburg last weekend if the energy my heart's kolob is now focusing on the first leg of the final hurdle to the group stages of the of the league i don't consider your league as a burden but but of course we like to be in champions league and i was also. used
10:47 am
to play in champions league you can bury did burden on the condition that the. squad and not just the ten feel players plus goalie but that the squad is a quality wise more broadly and there i have my concerns. over losing players through an overloaded schedule is inevitable that it must be elated knowing he'll have nearly all his players at his disposal for the game including africa struck do a similar to a latina thrower who have both been absent due to injuries he will however be without influential midfielder or do aftermath of who suffered a knee injury meanwhile and he's ever present rock in defense christopher samba was only too aware of the threat posed but was quick to point out why the mood in the dressing room was confident it's a final you know so we know importance of the game. of the game.
10:48 am
and make a very difficult game we're really confident you know we show in the previous game quality in the squad i'm sure we can compete in the end because. it's not going to go as i swim to feel in the last stage. in the past many managers have spoken out against the europa league branding it a burden teams could do without and although hitting believes that there's some truth in that he believes participation of russian teams in europe can only be beneficial to russia it would be a good achievement for a club growing club in in russia in outside russia to be in. in the group stage in europe the further you're come the more difficulties we will face with a team. not all this team but having some experience and. some experience playing in europe but if we play as we can then i think and i hope that
10:49 am
the we can get into the. the group stage which would be a good success for russian food especially for our club they may be only two games away from the committee issues group stages but they face strong opposition days it reached the quarter finals in the competition last year and has a habit of doing well in the competition and you will also be having one eye on next weekend's match against premier league new boys more dubious which could show whether the club has the depth needed to mount a proper challenge in europe. well another russian side seeking to make the europa league proper carving moscow outfit think favorites to see off the challenge of swedes stockholm over two legs the only man currently sits in the premier league have won their last two games. elsewhere to moscow have it all to do with their to make the europa league group stages new courage damage rescuing his charges going down to nil to stuttgart in their first like qualifier on wednesday after losing their opening five league games domestically confidence was in short supply

a battling opening forty five minutes for the sides going all square with a break but the host would since control later on in the game. hitting the net twice in the final twenty minutes to secure the win so to know what the final score meaning a massive effort is needed by the nama in the russian capital on change day if that continental quest is to continue. one of football's most famous rivalries will be reignited later on thursday barcelona and real madrid set to lock horns in the first el classico of the new season in the first leg of the spanish super cup there was barcelona who lifted the trophy last year winning five four on aggregate tempers range then with twelve yellow cards handed out on three players sent off manager joe is a marine your flame is composing then bass or assistant coach tito vilanova in the eye and while beating barcelona is the. bigger battles lie ahead this season. between rivals is always important. even in those. the tournaments but.
10:51 am
the super cup is the less important competition of of the four. during the season and i believe there is no relation between. the we know what is going to happen. in the whole season while newcastle and amounted to intervene over doesn't see either team as having a psychological advantage over the other despite the far past one six of their past eight meetings. no one team is in peak condition at the beginning of the season most of them reach top form in april or may when all the titles are at stake them both ryall and barcelona have had players through a common of the euro two thousand and twelve championships and we've had the same amount of time to prepare for the match that's why i think we're completely even with ryall at least on paper now to golf and one of the sport's greatest ever play is facing off against a potential lead to his throne that's what waits fans this weekend at the start of the fed ex cup playoffs world number three tiger woods paired with the top ranked
